Kyanite is a blue silicate mineral which forms under high temperature, high pressure conditions. It is resistant to heat up to 1100 degrees Celsius, and is thermoelectric, making it a valuable component of thermal power plants.
Assessment: Essential for advanced fabrication
- There were once single pieces of Kyanite that could be found in deep Biomes, such as the Blood Kelp Zone or the Dunes. These were removed in a later update. Single pieces can still be found near Alien Thermal Plant.
- Kyanite is the only large resource deposit in Subnautica that is not guaranteed to eject smaller pieces when drilling chunks from a large node. This is not a bug.
- There is a 0.0000005% chance for a large Kyanite deposit to yield 22 Kyanite pieces.
